Our Lady of Lourdes Connections

Today is the actual Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. We talked about it this morning and my mom said she wanted to watch the movie, “The Song of Bernadette” from 1943. She said it was her favorite movie when she was younger. Before we watched the movie, we turned on EWTN. The station was showing the live Mass and celebration in Lourdes. After Mass, they all processed to the grotto. My mom and I remembered being there and seeing the statue, the stone wall, and the tower of candles. I remembered not only the tangible environment, but the spirituality of the place that I felt, but didn’t completely understand as a child. Then we watched about half the movie as that was about all the TV time my mom could take. Today was also the 1 year anniversary of my dad’s funeral and burial. I reflected on all these connections our family has with Our Lady of Lourdes and am feeling particularly humbled and blessed.

I Found God today in our family connections with Our Lady of Lourdes.
